The Man on the Job.
Out in the state of Washington, a
bridge on the lino of one of the great
railways had been destroyed by lire,
and it was necessary to replnce it with
a temporary structure.
The bridge engineer and 'his staff
were ordered in haste to the place, a
drafting room waB established In an
adjoining station, and the scone be
came one of great activity.
Two days later came the superin
tendent of the division to add more
pressure to the already tense situa
tion. Alighting from his private car,
he encountered the master bridge
The latter was a type evolved by
the railroad situation of tho last gen
eration heavy handed, hard of head,

tho words quivered with energy, "I

builder, "whether the engineer has got

TICKETS 3 DOLLARS"
Manager Eager has succeeded in se
curing tho services of "Billy"' Fox us
busoball coach, last year field captain
of tho Lincoln Wostorn League team,
mid who has been retained by Guy
Green in the same position. -
Mr. Fox is an infielder, playing sec
ond base, and Tip O'Neli, president
or the Western League, says that ho
is the best in the business.
Besides being a ball player, Billy
Is a college man, and knows college
baBoball ,lts trialB and troubles, and
Is undoubtedly able to cope with thorn
in an effective manner.
A college team usually finds itsolf
at tho beginning of a new season long
on young and ambitious players, but
woefully short of tried men who can
bear the burden of the early games.
The youngsters come from tho high
school teams of the state freighted
with a large idea of their playing abil
ities, and if allowed to indulge In the
mania for grandstand plays and one
man ball, they develop into unsafo
men. to be covering a position when
the .game grown close. The old men
who have played before under' the
scarlet "N" have learned by experi
ence that the one man game cannot
win. The only way that tho young
sters can learn is either by experience,
which Is apt to result in sqino losses
to the team, or by following tho ex
ample of a good, steady, h'ehdy ball
player, as Mr. Fox Ib. It is for his
example and his knowledge of the
actual exigencies of the game thnt
tho coach is hired. He can not teach
a man to.be a ball player in a month,
but if the freshman can catch and bat
which are the first requirements of
a baseball man ho can keep his eyes
open and learn the finer points of tho
game that differentiate the player of
the vacant lpt from the wearer of a
league uniform, - - - -
ThlB year we are fortunate in having
an abundance, of old men, nil of last
year's team except Bob Carroll and
Billy Rine being still in school. To
fill the two vacancies there is also an
abundance of material to pick from.
Those who idok best at the present
are: Decatur, a Soulh Dakotan;
Stufezager of South Bend, Griffin,
Donslow, Jennings, Patterson, Alleu,
and two boys from the law school
named jGreenslit. ' ,t
